Action Alert: Public Hearing on CT Toll-Related Bills!

March 4, 2019

If you don’t want CT to become the most tolled state in America…

And if you don’t like the idea of a “CT Mileage Tax”…

Then please read on:

There is a public hearing on Wednesday on two bills proposed by CT Democrats that would allow the state to impose tolls.

 

Bill 7280
The language in Bill 7280 says that a tolling proposal submitted by the CT Department of Transportation will be deemed approved if the General Assembly does not hold a vote within 15 days. YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS WOULDN’T EVEN HAVE TO VOTE.

What can you do?

  • Send a brief email today to TRAtestimony@cga.ct.gov
  • Put “No to Bill 7280” in the subject line
  • Include your name and town.
  • You can read more about the bill here: https://www.cga.ct.gov/2019/TOB/h/pdf/2019HB-07280-R00-HB.PDF
  • You can attend the hearing at 11 a.m. Wednesday in Room 1E of the Legislative Office Building.

 

Bill 7202
Bill 7202 would allow the CT DOT to put tolls on Routes 84, 91, 95, and 15. Tolls would NOT just be on the borders. And tolls would be on ALL vehicles.
What can you do?
